Danielle Cheiken

Danielle Cheiken is thrilled to be back with San Francisco Playhouse, after making her company debut here last summer as Young Phyllis and Young Heidi in Follies. Praised for being “magnificent, playful, and nimble” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and “terrifically funny and feisty” (Talkin’ Broadway), she is an active performer in the Bay Area in both musical theatre and operatic repertoires. Danielle most recently performed the roles of Mary and Opera Singer in the West Coast premiere of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 with Shotgun Players. Other favorites roles include Musetta in La Bohème, Tess in Crazy For You, Frenchy in Grease, Frieda Bauer in Pardon My English, Ethel Toffelmier in The Music Man, Winnie Winslow in No, No, Nanette, Fräulein Silberklang in Der Schauspieldirektor, and Just Jeanette in Too Many Sopranos. www.daniellecheiken.com
